How To Cook Omaha Steaks
There’s nothing better on a summer afternoon than the sight, sound and, of course, the delicious smell of a steak on the barbecue.
To ensure the tastiest steak bring it to room temperature before grilling. The best steak requires no tenderizing or marinading; it should be good enough to throw straight onto the grill. OK, maybe you could press it onto a plate sprinkled with good sea salt and freshly milled black pepper.
So, what if you would like additional flavor? Maybe you prefer your steaks marinaded or accompanied by a delicious sauce. Well, the purists may not agree with you but, I for one, really enjoy my sirloin with a creamy, blue cheese sauce.
How to Grill the Perfect Steak
Here’s an ultra-quick recipe to liven up your steak.
For two servings – ingredients required:
- 2 sirloin steaks
- One tablespoon oil
- One half a red onion, peeled and sliced
- 2oz blue cheese (I prefer English Stilton)
- Two tablespoons cream full-fat cheese
- One tablespoon whole milk
- One teaspoon English mustard
- One fourth teaspoon of grated/powdered nutmeg
This requires that you cook your steak in a pan so that any escaping juices are saved. You can give it a very quick searing on the grill first if you wish but quickly transfer it to a fry pan, together with the oil and onions.
Cook the steaks to your liking and slide them, and the onions, onto a warmed plate. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan and cook gently for 1 minute. Pour it over the steak and onions, serve with a salad and baby potatoes. Enjoy.
The best cuts for the grill are sirloin, rib and t-bone. They are flavorsome and able to withstand a good searing on the barbecue. They retain their juiciness and tenderness well. To enjoy the tastiest steak, you need to buy the highest quality meat you can find. Usually this means avoiding the grocery store and buying your steak at the butcher’s. Even then, there is no guarantee that your steak will be tender and tasty. However, there is another way of making sure that the steaks you serve up to your family and friends are of the finest quality.
Buying online is the newest way to have premium beef steak delivered right to your door. Tender, juicy steak, fresh frozen and packed to go straight into your freezer ready for the weekend BBQ.
